Founder and president of the Living Faith Church Worldwide (aka Winners’ Chapel), Bishop David Oyedepo has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign due to the continued Fulani herdsmen killings.
The cleric who was unhappy with the state of the nation declared that enough was enough and asked his congregation not to give up their lands for cattle grazing.
Speaking on the theme, “Enough is enough,” he said,
“When I was talking in 2015, people were saying my own was too much, now everybody can see what’s happening. What has moved forward in anybody’s life? You don’t know it’s war. Why are they attacking the Christian communities? Why has nobody been arrested? I can tell you this, the authorities and the powers that be are behind them.
“I will never be partisan; Jesus got me out of it in 1984. But I will not be alive to see innocent people massacred.
“We must wake up and push this evil back. Not one of those so-called herdsmen – they are jihadists – has been brought to book till date.
“Herdsmen don’t shoot; they have been here all along. They are just taking cover under the herdsmen to assault innocent citizens.
“They wake up in the night and slice innocent children to pieces. Yet, you have a government in place. What!
“The most honourable thing for any non-performing leader to do is to resign.
“It’s not just land it’s your heritage. No government has authority to collect any land from those who own it and transfer it to another person. And on the other side it never happens’. He declared that “Nigeria will never become a Fulani republic. Fulani is one of the 256 tribes in Nigeria,” he said.
Concerning the incessant killings, he said:
“We must wake up and push this evil back. Not one of those so-called herdsmen (they are jihadists) has been brought to book till date.” “They wake up in the night and slice innocent children to pieces. Look I don’t want to bother you with the pictures… Gruesome pictures… And you have a government in place. What!” He concluded by saying that: “The most honorable thing for any none performing leader is to resign… That’s my word for Mr President resign… Get out of the place.”
